I've been pretty disappointed with my Civic, almost since I bought it. I've really wanted to get rid of it and get an Audi A4 or a VW GTI for a while but since I don't have a job, I've been waiting. I was discussing this with a friend and they said "Just get rid of the Civic!" Since I had quite a bit of equity in my Civic, I started thinking "Yeah, why don't I just get rid of it and buy something out right." This was Monday, Tuesday, I took the HIDs and CAI out of my Civic. Wednesday I got this:

2002 Volkswagen GTI, Rave Green, 5spd (really wanted a 6spd but they only come in the 337/20th Anniversary GTI and GLI and I can't afford one of those), Tan Leather, power everything, heated seats, heated mirrors, sun roof, lots of good stuff. The car is very fun to drive, 1.8L, turbo charged, 180hp. Needs some TLC on the interior but everything else is in great shape. The best part is I no longer have a car payment and didn't have to put any money out for this car. Plans are already churning for stuff like wheels, lowering, engine mods, stereo, ect....

I am very happy :D

Boosted cars FTW!!

Ditch the wheels. Get a better flowing filter/intake tubing (I'm sure it's plastic from factory) then find out what's the boost set at then figure out how to bump it up (after you get exhaust to match it)!

Nice!

Nice, has me thinking about getting rid of my Civic too, despite my Dad's teachings (which still have me afraid of German cars + Chevies, despite the fact that I work on all brands).

Someday.. :(

The ballasts are universal, if anything I would just have to get new bulbs.

I LOVE the Jazz Blue. I have lots of plans, gotta get a bank account that can handle them.

also if you havent read up on the diode mod, is easy and cheap to do, and dont get a bov, and install a boost gauge< it will help you when you tune it

I plan on getting a blow off valve, but only after I upgrade to a bigger turbo and bigger intercooler. Until then I think I'm gonna leave it alone. The Diode Mod sounds cool.

I always had a place in my heart for Golf's. My bro had an old one. That thing was a fun car. Not as fast or as much torque as his Gen 1 & 2 DSM's, but it was fun. Can't wait to see what you're going to do with it.

see the thing is that a bov doesnt really do much, it might make your car run rich, if you just want it for the sound get a ram intake, the stock dv is fine

The sound of a BOV is nothing like the sound from an intake. I'm doing my research, in the end I will do whats best for the over all performance.

A good turbo with a BOV sounds pretty beastly.

I personally love the sound of a BOV.

yea but the bov just makes car run rich, the stock dv is good till you make alot more power

I plan on making a lot more power, but not anytime soon. That will only happen when I can afford a second car and the GTI can be just a weekend car.
